Boring self indulgence

A man as Richard Branson must have some interesting things to say I thought. Boy, was I wrong. If you want to hear an endless list of all the "great" things this man has done and hear him blow his own trumpet, the whole time, then by all means read this book.

I was expecting something more of a book full of lesson's learned, enriched by many of the successes or failures this man must have had. There are some interesting parts of course, but these are very rare.

more like an autobiography

Would you listen to Screw It, Let's Do It again? Why?

Interesting story of his life. He seems like a good person. If you're looking for a book on finance/entrepreneurship, it's only sprinkled in rare bits here and there. This is more of his motivational life story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Screw It, Let's Do It?

Moral of the story: if you want something bad enough, then make it happen!

Which character – as performed by Adrian Mulraney – was your favorite?

Narrator is great. Tells the story well and has a soothing voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Too long for one sitting

Any additional comments?

A lot about hot air balloon rides and even more about global warming and virgin airways

Seemed a bit all over the place, but very good

Really good book. Tough to find a hard premise to the whole thing, a bit scattered but well done. I enjoyed learning about Branson's many incredible past stories of his amazing life. Lots of great principles taught.

Excellent piece of work

This is an excellent piece of factual and motivational story telling. A little repetitive in a few chapters but this mans life is a true work of innovation

It also reveals the power of drive, the essence of family and friends and most importantly the gifts and talents bestowed upon him by God even though he never acknowledges the giver of life. A truly triumphant spirit. A great read and phenomenal work

Hip but the climate changes half way through

A biography of a hipster adventurer who becomes trapped in global warming and can't get out. A very unique personality.
